action, israel will have to do it by itself. it will not be easy. it will be harder. to deal with retaliation not only from iran. they will be nation's flying in from iran, from lebanon, hezbollah will join. hamas in gaza will send hundreds of missiles. but if we have to choose today between the option of allowing iran to become nuclear, to the option of fighting ourselves, i think the is a clear message what we will do. and the question is if will do with the u.s. or without the u.s., we are asking today. one of the main points of my book, i know many people here are involved with the middle east is the issue of two-state solution. for the last 20 years we hear about two-state solution. you must finish the conflict, the resolution will be a palestinian state. and president obama adopted this approach and she's calling upon us, the israelis to build a palestinian state and go back to 1967 lines. and in my book, a new paradigm. enough with a two-state solution. it doesn't work. we have tried for the last 20 years. we signed the accord and we haven't received any peace. we trie
scientists that have been assassinated presumably, widely believed by israel. that is the difference. is the red line getting a nuclear weapon or is the red line getting nuclear capability? >> why does that distinction matter to the american people? >> i think that it is a very dangerous development to set redlines in diplomacy. it means that diplomacy is almost bound to fail in here is our bread line, more sanctions, more sanctions, more sanctions. we will get congress to pass a law that will make it illegal for us to have any carrots. that means that diplomacy will not work. it is dangerous across the board. the reason why it is more dangerous to say a red line will be crossed so early is, number one, it brings it much closer, ratcheting up the political pressure. it does not change anything on the ground. but once a candidate boxes himself in, and we're talking man here, so i will not say himself/herself, one candid it boxes himself in and say i will set as a red line iran obtain nuclear capability. if gov. ronnie's good friend, benjamin netanyahu, says that he believes that iran

(laughter) but, folks, this wasn't just about israel it was also about countries that pose a threat to israel. a threat that obama has done nothing to stop. >> we're four years closer to a nuclear iran. we're four years closer to a nuclear iran. >> yes. four years after obama was elected, four whole years have passed. (laughter) the president did nothing to stop the march of time (laughter) not only is iran four years closer to a nuclear bomb, if you think about it, everybody is. even me!

and southwest asia is largely islamic. but jerusalem, like the rest of israel and palestine, is bitterly divi between muslims anjews. at the beginning of the 21st century, arabs in the israeli-occupied territories on the west bank and the gaza strip began an uprising they called the "second intifada." it was marked by a seemingly endless cycle of arab attacks and suicide bombings followed by israeli repriss. in order to understand the prospects for peace, we explore the historical geography of israel and palestine with special emphasis on the sacred space of jerusalem. for half a century, israelis and palestinians have battled over jerusalem and a larger homeland. helping to mediate competing claims was dennis b. ross, special envoy for the first president bush and then president clinton. as his term ended, the peace process crumbled. the intifada that began has had lots of casualties. unfortunately, one of the worst casualties-- in addition to the true human suffering-- has been a loss of complete faith and belief in peacemaking. what is so disheartening for someone like me, after having dot
, the arab spring, and the danger nuclear-weapons already pose in the middle east. >> israel refuses to allow inspections at all, refuses to join the non-proliferation treaty, has hundreds of nuclear weapons, advanced delivery system, and a long record of violence and repression. >> all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!,", the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we are broadcasting from portland, oregon. at least 40 people have been killed in a suicide attack on a mosque in northern afghanistan. the victims had gathered to mark the first day of the muslim holiday. another 70 people were wounded. violence continues in syria despite an informal agreement for four-day holiday ceasefire. clashes erupted between government forces and rebel fighters earlier today near a northern military base. a number of anti regime protests have been held across syria, with troops firing tear gas and live rounds to disperse demonstrators in several areas. on thursday, a u.n. spokesperson for secretary- general ban ki-moon said the ceasefire marked a critical juncture for the
chance that the regime will overcome the current problems, and certainly israel values the relationship with jordan immensely. the largest -- the longest border israel has with an arab states is with jordan. many years have gone by -- this was a border which was the source of constant terrorist activity, which was conducted across the border into israel. this has now stopped. it is the most peaceful border we have today. we hope it stays there. i said the most peaceful border -- although we have one more line which is also a line which has been relatively peaceful, and that has been the disengagement line between us and syria, which has lasted since 1974 to today. 38 years? 38 years of a line, which we have preserved the road to peace -- i think that is a big achievement for both sides. >> yes. >> hi, my name is julie. i am here with human events. thank you for your time today. i am wondering what you make of the fact that the main suspect in last year's iranian plot to assassinate the saudi ambassador to the united states pled guilty in a u.s. court yesterday. what does this maybe say
. and by the way, you skipped israel. our closest friend in the region but went to other nations and by the way they noticed you skipped israel then in those nations you said america had been dismissive. you said that on occasion america has dictated to other nations. mr. president, america has not dictated to other nations we have freed other nations from dictators. >> let me respond. if we're going to talk about trips we've made, you know, when i was a candidate for office, first trip i took was to visit our troopts. -- troops. and when i twont israel as a candidate i didn't take donors. i didn't attempt fund-raisers. i went to the holocaust museum to remind myself the nature of evil. why our bond with israel will be unbreakable. >> so how does the race look now? karl rove is here tonight as a fox news political analyst. good evening, karl. >> good evening. >> greta: carl how do you determine who won? what is your measurement? tell me what you think. >> let's remember that when talking about winning and losing one frame is like an olympic judge. how is your style? how did you enter water. lik
or anything like that. but we went out to north shore congregation israel reformed synagogue here in the chicago area, and we will come and talk shortly to rabbi bronstein, who does a wonderful job on our dimensional triangle. but what i did is i just - i wanted to take a bible, and i picked up one of the psalms. the psalms, in many cases, are, well, they're songs about the great mythic tradition. and i just picked one psalm, i think it's 139, unless it's 136, but it's right in the 130s, and i'm just going to read it, and listen for how the creation myths, the liberation myth or exodus myth, and then the sinai myth are encapsulated in this. and then you can kind of imagine david perhaps - king david sitting around playing his lyre after the goats are milked or whatever they did back there or the figs are eaten, and he's singing the mythic drama, and people are sitting around the campfire, and they're listening, and it's undergirding or underscoring their sense of identity, who they are, and relationship, but it also has heroes and powerful acts and all this stuff in it. so let's g
over from israel, i studied -- [inaudible] and my question regarding my region and the field we just doesed -- discussing here. i was wondering what your administration was trying to solve the crisis of natural gas between israel and egypt. and the joinlt projects of energy resources in the middle east between israel and jordan. does that come to play with something you said. >> another excellent question. three home run questions from three freshmen. [laughter] the united states is very 0 supportive of efforts in the middle east to try to work out some of the challenges to the production and exporting of energy. and i think you know from having been in israel, israel has made some significant finds of natural gas off the coastline, and there's also the potential for such new energy sources off of cypress, off of lebanon, and we have been urging diplomatically that everybody work out their boundaries, that gets me back to one of the points i was making because there's often overlapping claimant -- -- claims and unless they're resolved stand in the way of the commercial exemployeation

a visit to israel and the occupied west bank, president carter said israel, with u.s. backing, has never been less publicly committed to a two-state solution. >> i think for the first time in my memory of the mideast peace process, we have reached a crisis stage. it because all the previous prime ministers of israel have been detective lee and proven the committed to a two-day solution. i was at every prime minister i have known has been a pursuer of the two-day solution. i don't know that president obama has found prime minister netanyahu is willing to go that route. >> in canada, thousands of people gathered outside the provincial parliament in victoria, british columbia on monday to protest a massive oil pipeline. the rally was billed as the largest to date against the enbridge corporation's northern gateway pipeline project, which would carry crude oil from alberta to canada's west coast. critics say it stands to cut through sensitive environmental areas and first nations' lands. rallies were held across the u.s. on monday in a national day of action against police brutality and the

since lyndon johnson has tried to stop israel from building settlements on the west bank because they understood that those settlements threaten to foreclose the possibility of a two-state solution. some presidents pushed hard, some not very hard. at camp david jimmy carter believed he had received assurances that settlement building would stop and that a process leading to self-determination and autonomy on the west bank would commence. but settlement building did not stop, and is both carter and the egyptians for different reasons did not make too much of a fuss. ronald reagan called for a settlement freeze without making a big issue of it. george h.w. bush did make a big issue of it and paid a steep political price which may have cost him re-election. bill clinton wanted very much a viable palestinian state, and he found that settlement building continued whether israel was headed by labor and, indeed, accelerated throughout the 1990s. barack obama made a settlement freeze the jumping-off point for his peace efforts and was smacked down decisively by prime minister netanyahu a

or the west or israel as the central organizing principle of politics. for that only gives cover and sometimes makes an excuse for those who do resort to violence. that brand of politics, one that pits east against west and south against north, moslems against christian and hindus against jews cannot deliver on the promise of freedom -- muslims against christians, and hindus against jews, can't deliver the promise of freedom. to the youth, it provides a false hope. burning an american flag does nothing to provide an education. smashing apart a restaurant does not fill an empty stomach. attacking an embassy will not create a single job. that brand of politics only makes it harder to achieve what we must do together -- educating our children and creaking opportunities they deserve. protecting human rights and creating opportunities they deserve. protecting human rights. america will never retreat from the world. we will bring justice to those who hurt our friends and we will stand with our allies. if we are willing to partner with countries around the world in deeper trade, investment in science
capability, and b., they will have to come to terms with the existence of the state of israel. their refusal to accept the right of a sovereign state, a member of the united nations as a viable state, a state which is legitimate, is unacceptable from any point of view. from any aspect and angle whatsoever. we cannot accept the iranians will be allowed to legitimize another state whatever it is. and certainly not from our point of view not israel. they will have swallow two bitter pills not one. one pill will be the pill of the threat nuclear threat and the other will be the threat of accepting israel right to exist. despite the rhetoric we are hearing from teheran, i believe that many iranians in places of power understand that israel is here to stay. they realize that israel not going disappear as it will not disappear. and therefore, they will have to come terms with this reality. and these two elements means to say in order to achieve the aim, you have to find ways of giving them what did i say a few minutes ago? to resort to the use of dignity. it's a different good thing to do. it's ver
threat to our world, to our country, to the region and is certainly to our ally israel. in fact to them, it is an existential threat. and this is a threat that i take enormously seriously. and we cannot let iran become capable of making a nuclear weapon. it's why i believe that the president, all options on the table approach is the right approach. we have looked at it carefully over the years of conditions have changed. and dealt cooperative way and in high collaboration with senior israeli intelligence and military officials and u.s. intelligence and military officials. i believe right now we are at a point where we are in agreement that the crippling sanctions i supported are doing, are beginning to do their job. but we cannot let iran become capable of manufacturing a nuclear weapon. and so, i absolutely support israel's right to defend itself. we leave the military option on the table. but you never go into a war without having an exit strategy and a plan for victory. >> governor thompson. >> we are in a very unsafe world today. iran is run by the ayatollah. and the prime minister
